“Great experience all the way around!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2011

You would think that staying in an RV park would be sketchy. Turns out, Paradise on the River is a gem! Yes, it is a little crammed, but it is so quiet and with the sound of the river & plenty of little outdoor spaces, it was hardly noticeable that it was an RV park. Seriously, the RV was awesome...super clean, spacious, and had everything you needed, for a great price! And the bath towels and linens were plush! Our friends stayed in the cabins, and they were absolutely immaculate and so gorgeous. This is a great find, in a perfect location. You are right outside of Estes Park, so a little bit away from all of the touristy stuff, but close enough to everything you need and minutes from Rocky Mountain National Park entrance. Staff went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful. I can't say enough great things about this place!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Moose Meadow RV...it was very spacious and had a really private outdoor area with g...

My husband and I just stayed there for our wedding and reception and it was absolutely perfect!!!! We stayed at Creekview cabin with our dog and our family stayed at some of the other cabins, RV's and the large house Hallet's Peak. The staff was so warm and welcoming, very accomodating to all our needs, just like family, super nice and friendly, I can't say enough about them! Carol and the owner Diana were great! The cabins looked very very new! So well decorated and extraordinarily clean!!!!!!!! I couldn't get over how homey they felt, yet a cabin feel. They had all the stuff we needed, pots/pans, glasses, silverware, towels, coffemaker, etc!!! We stayed in a 4 person dog friendly cabin, you'd never know there were dogs even in there ever, amazing views of the river and hills nearby and elk in the morning on the river! It was a decent size, maybe a little cramped for 4 people but 2 and a dog was fine but we also had tons of stuff with us too. The beds were super comfortable and the sheets were better than my own! I just loved sitting on our deck with our fire ring and listening to the river and drinking coffee. It's a small lot with many RVs but it was super quiet, especially with the river noises. There's a separate doggie potty area too. We were able to leash our dog to the deck so he was able to enjoy inside and out. He had a few moments of barking but no one ever spoke to us about it. Being Oct, a lot of people were gone from their permanent RV's so we had plenty of space for our family and guests to park. We had a short wedding ceremony at Lily lake and a mini reception back at the cabins at the larger cabin/house Hallets Peak. We had about 34 people and had plenty of space, it worked out perfect! They had plenty of picnic tables for us, plenty of lawn area and deck space, it worked out very well, I suggest it for any get together! Overall, we are so glad we did a destination wedding in Estes, and we are so happy with our stay at Paradise!!! We definitely plan on returning!!!!

Room Tip: Creek View and Pine Creek cabins have the best view

We had 2 couples staying in the "Pine Creek" cabin. The staff were very friendly even before we arrived. They were very helpful booking the cabin, even the few times I called to see the different amenities available and they were so nice and friendly all throughout our stay. The cabin was clean and cozy and stocked with everything we needed. The bed in the bedroom was comfortable but the pull-out couch wasn't very comfortable. Overall it was a great stay and we'll be repeat customers!!!

I spent hours online trying to find the right cabin for our first trip to Colorado in June 2010. I finally settled on the Brookside Cabin at Paradise on the River. We were a little nervous because what you see online is not always what you get in person. We were pleasantly surprised to find Paradise on the River was even better in person. We loved the sound of the Big Thompson rushing by the cabin, and we loved the privacy too...it is the perfect retreat! This past June (2011) we stayed at Hallett's Peak just for a little more space to spread out. What a great deal! We really enjoyed the hot tub after a long day of hiking. Both of the cabins we stayed in were nicely decorated, up-to-date and very clean...AND affordable! The owners are very helpful, friendly & accommodating. We plan to return every year -- Paradise on the River is the only place we will stay during our Estes Park vacations!

This was the best stay in Estes we have had and we go at least every two years. The people were unbelievable and did everything they could to make your stay the best. The entire park was extremely clean and a wonderful atmosphere. We have our own rv but chose to just stay in a rental this time and the rentals were awesome.
